towards us, we expect to see the rain by 2:00, 3:00 in the afternoon getting heavier as the day wears on. w we expect earl parallel to the outer banks. just about 2:00, 3:00 tomorrow morning and as it continues up the coast to the jersey shoreline and then new england, we expect it might possibly make landfall along to nantucket where it juts out. it doesn't have to make landfall to cause major problems. it is moving forward at 18 miles per hour. that will increase the possibility of storm surge where you get most of the damage through the storm surge, but we look for heavy rains, high winds and, again, hurricane force winds extend out 90 miles from the center of the storm. so you don't have to make landfall to get major impact from this hurricane. we'll continue to monitor it and there will be an update coming up from the national hurricane center within the hour. more details for you. >> thanks very much, al. let's get over to meteorologist bill karins. i can tell you fraught talking to al earlier, those winds have picked up where he is. what are things looking like right now? >> i am

, savannah. this was the worst helicopter crash in about four years for u.s. troops. nine troops dead. this happened in zabul province, which is in the south-southeastern section of afghanistan. an area where the taliban controls much of the territory and where coalition forces have been stepping up their attempts to push the taliban out. we are told this crash happened about 4:00 this morning, local time. the military says that there were no reports of enemy fire. that the crash is still under investigation. now, despite the fact that there were no reports of enemy fire, the taliban has called news organizations, including a call here at nbc news in kabul, to claim responsibility for the attack. they say they shot the helicopter down. the taliban often does that, claims responsibility for things that turn out to be accidents. and indeed, most of the helicopter crashes here have turned out to be accidents. maintenance problems, the incredible amount of dust in the air. this is the deadliest year for coalition forces. after today's crash, 525 coalition forces have died this year. 351 o

power. let's head to new jersey where mike tiabbi is standing by for us. what's the latest out there? >> reporter: the latest is that it looks like a nice kind of oily weather, but late afternoon. near miss, glancing blow, dodging a bullet, any of them work for the jersey shore, because while they were prepared for the worst, and a category 4 hurricane would have been the worst, it certainly wasn't the worse. it didn't even deliver the tropical storm winds you were talking about, it was about 40 miles an hour. it's just about high tide right now, as you look behind me, you can see the surge of the surf coming up on the beach further than it normally does, you see people walking out there, but there's really even been very little rain here, very little flooding obviously with very little rain and no worries at this point that the rain would cause any damage whatsoever. and some people have been ignoring those warnings about rip currents, the coast guard has just suspended the search for one man who disappeared off delmar just a little while ago and they recover the body of a man who d

us in clarifying some of that. we'll stay on top of it. an anne, can you clarify the difference between this being an oil rig and an oil platform. >> reporter: i wish i could. but i cannot. the good news is obviously fewer people were on this platform than on the deepwater horizon where you remember over 100 were on board when it exploded. we know there's a smaller human element to this. the question is what is the environmental danger from this fire? it's just too early to know. >> i understand there's an update now about the deepwater horizon well as well. >> yes. bp through its twitter counacco put out it resumed trying to move the capping stack on top of the macondo well that caused all the problems in the deepwater horizon. it's the first in a multi-step process. the enterprise will try to lift up the capping stack. then the q-4,000 will go on and latch onto the blowout preventer. the blowout preventer failed to work on that rig. it's a key piece of evidence in the criminal investigation as to what happened on april 20th. once the seas are calm, and they need seas of three

no ray is can city for this weekend an the manager told us no cancellations that is the same sort of thing we have heard from cape may to ocean and mon mouth counties. the economic impact not likely to happen. today, as julie suggested, there is going to be a period of to uncertainty and discomfort in the mid-atlantic states. those winds that are going to be tropical storm-force, 40 miles an hour or so, will likely hit here, the wing span of the storm is wide enough 150 miles, feel the winds here. no hurricane-force winds, even though they have been an emergency disaster declaration meaning they can close roads and open emergency shelters, not likely to be called in, no major flooding suggested, not even all that much rain, the rain did just start about ten minutes ago just in time for this report. so going to get some effects from the storm but looks like new jersey's streak, not having a landfalling hurricane for 111 years will continue along the real jersey shore. kris? >> you talk about the 40-mile-an-hour winds, the obvious question is that strong enough to blow snooki over?

for bringing us up to date there. swimmers ordered out of the water because of a dangerous riptide on this very important labor day weekend. many delayed plans or just took off early. cape may, new jersey, declared a state of emergency and the communications director for cape may, when's the big concern? why the state of emergency? >> contessa, the state of emergency has just been lifted. >> okay. >> it was not a state of emergency. it was an emergency proclamation signed late yesterday afternoon that enabled the local municipalities and the county to take the extra preparedness steps that needed to be taken. looking at the path of earl yesterday. but the emergency proclamation has been lifted. here at the jersey shore, the concern is for the rough surf and rip currents. again, with the waves out at eight to 12 feet, that's what the concern is right now. there's very little rain. we are experiencing some winds, sustained winds at 30 to 40 miles per hour, gusts to 50 miles per hour. basically earl spared us here at the jersey shore. >> have there been problems with swimmers needing to be rescued
